Chromeo (featuring Elly Jackson) - Hot Mess (Duck Sauce Remix)

 

So what's that Duck Sauce remix of Chromeo and Elly's Hot Mess sound like then?

Chromeo (ft La Roux) - Hot Mess (12" Mix)

This is not the radio rip. I repeat, NOT the radio rip.

Also, I am 100% obsessed with Chromeo's Hot Mess re-do right now and I don't even like La Roux all that much. So good on you boys and Elly. I will be listening to this and only this for the rest of the week.

Recap: The Fool's Gold and Jelly Pool Party Was, In Fact, Not The Last One

And damn it, I'm psyched as psyched can be that we've got one more week to revel in the radness that is this summer's Jelly Pool Party events, down at the Williamsburg Waterfront. After major OSA vs Jelly eFisticuffs went down, I awakened this past Sunday morning to news that next week's Delorean and Dominique Young Unique-featuring event is back on. Hooray! But before we get too far ahead, let's take a lil' looksy at the weekend that was: rain, rum, record labels and all.

Fool's Gold had the distinguishing honor of curating the day's lineup, and what better way to do so than with a ton of their friends and, literally, family. Chromeo (half made of the other brother Macklovitch, he who heads up the label...A-Trak), Kid Sister (A's girl), The Suzan and Telephoned rounded out the bill, with deck destroyer Kingdom offering up the in-betwixt set spins.

 

The rain delayed everything just a smidge, but the warm confines of the All Saints Pub once again proved a proper breeding ground for afternoon shenanigans, high fives, hollering at hot contingents, and giving us good reason to smile and toss 'em back in anticipation of next week's sayonara soiree. Also, we know who that TBA guest is. You're probably going to want to be in attendance.

 

Full set of pictures from this past Sunday's Pool Party can be viewed here. And yeah, they're all from behind and/or in All Saints cause I didnt feel like getting dropped on with precipitation. Baby Beast.

Telephoned - Keep Their Heads Ringin' (free mixtape!)

Fool’s Gold’s dynamic duo, Telephoned, have put together a seriously kickass new mixtape, Keep Their Heads Ringin, just in time for their opening slot on Chromeo’s US tour (which kicked off this week with shows in DC and Philly, before hitting Bowery Ballroom tonight). The mixtape gives listeners a perfect taste of the new sounds that Maggie Horn and Sammy Bananas have woven into their repertoire of party starting not-quite-cover songs.

Be[a]st Mashes (Black Glove edition)

April 23 was a pretty good day, thanks to a submission from Black Glove. Sadly, and embarrassedly so, I'll admit that I haven't checked in on Burlington, VT's Deke Smith and Jonathan Sandridge in well over that near two-month time span. My sincerest apologies, boys...but on the flipzy, I'm gonna remedy that now.

Holy moly, these kids have been busy...and it looks like they've been stalking some of my favorite tunes as well. There are a slew of new fix-ups and do-overs that they're hosting on their page, but I'm going to highlight some of these new tunes, because, well, they deserve it!

First on the docket is a basket full of Beach House, Mims and Chromeo. After their first mash I'd heard, it's evident that the boys are masters of the soft and intimate "hey this ain't no dandy banger" style re-work. This piece falls right in line with that sentiment, and it're precisely why I love it.

mp3: Beach House x Mims x Chromeo - Like This (Black Glove Mash)

 

Next up, we've got two of my favorites...Robyn and Dominique Young Unique. On one song. TOGETHER?! While it is of the smashed up variety, one can only hope that this pairing will one day lead to a real-life collaboration. We can all dream, eh?

mp3: Robyn x Dominique Young Unique - Show You My Dancing Ass (Black Glove Mash)

 

Rounding out the trio of radness, new star on the rise, Florrie, gets topped off with a bit of the Beastie Boys. Sounds like a recipe for disaster, right? Think again. Oh yum!

mp3: Florrie x Beastie Boys - 911 Body Movin (Black Glove Mash)

I'd also suggest you go to their page to check out some of their newer stuff as well. Give an ear to Kid Sister and Ludacris, M.I.A. and Don Diablo, TLC and Mims, along with a full on zip file of a ton of tracks.

 

Virtual high fives!
